Trying to trade for Papelbon is a curious move for Brewers

Yahoo’s Jeff Passan reports that the Milwaukee Brewers are in serious talks with the Philadelphia Phillies about a trade for closer Jonathan Papelbon. Papelbon can block trades to 17 teams but it is unknown if Milwaukee is one of them and Papelbon could always go ahead and approve the trade if they were.

If Papelbon would approve the trade is just one of the questions surrounding these “serious talks.” There are still closer options on the free agent market, including Rafael Soriano and Milwaukee’s former closer Francisco Rodriguez.
